We travel to grow – our Adventure Guides show you how.

But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique.

I bought this after reading the author's piece on Lake Como on the GoNomad site. I wasn't disappointed - there's masses of extra information here that many other guidebooks just don't have, and all of the lakes are covered, plus day trips to nearby towns, etc. Good variety of hotel and restaurants - not just for those with big budgets. I particularly like the listing and addresses for the ''adventures'' - which include anything from diving schools, bike and boat hire thro to art courses.
The book doesn't seem quite as glossy as some other titles but the content is great - and clearly written by somebody who knows the region well. Maps are good too - including Milan metro map! -- Amazon reviewer
